Thanks to Benjamin Eng and his cousin who helped me to buy the Nike+ FuelBand (Black Ice) from the US. I tried purchasing it myself and sending it to a freight forwarder, but both my credit card and PayPal payment could not go through! I guess they also ensure that the payment must be done with a US credit card or a US PayPal account.
I paid a total of US$180 (S$220) to Benjamin’s cousin. The actual breakdown is as follows: US$149 (Nike+ FuelBand) + US$15 (Express Shipping) + US$8.80 (Tax) = US$172.8.
No idea why Li Xiang is so obsessed with sports right now, but she did influence me in some way. I have started jogging every Wednesday since 2 weeks ago and perhaps will extend to jogging twice per week and perhaps in the future 3 times a week. Even when jogging, the gadget freak in me also bought some gadgets for it.
Got my Nike + iPod Sport Kit (S$55) and SwitchEasy Runaway (S$16) from Ion’s EpiCenter. I am intending to use it with my newly bought 6th Generation 16GB iPod Nano (Graphite) (S$278) which will be delivered tomorrow from Apple Store (Singapore). I ordered online because it includes free laser engraving! This is my first time owning an iPod Nano.
Nike open its largest Nike Flagship store in Southeast Asia right here in Singapore. It is located on second and third floor of Wisma Atria Shopping Centre which is in Orchard Road, Singapore. The largest Nike store in SEA used to be in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
They have a Nike ID Studio in the store which provides T-Shirt customization and sells some exclusive range like Metallic Windrunners jackets.
